Charles Renfrew Thomson

Charles R. Thomson died at home in Alexandria, Virginia July 3, 2005 of cardiovascular collapse. He had a distinguished career as a special agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and helped apprehend the people who bombed the World Trade Center in 1993.  He received the Presidential Rank Award for his work on the bureau’s response to the Oklahoma bombing in 1995.

Charlie came to Dartmouth from Amesbury, Massachusetts. He was a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and Dragon Senior Society. After serving in the Army in Vietnam and Germany he began his career with ATF in 1971.  He retired from the Bureau in 1999, doing part time consulting on crisis management and antiterrorism as well as pursuing hobbies of growing bonsai plants, flowers and trees, and of studying Native American culture and collecting traditional arts.

He is survived by his wife, Louise Lindblom Thomson, a son and two stepchildren, his mother, a sister, and a brother.
